As long as you source the original ROS workspace (say Kinetic) before building your custom distro, I believe the overlays work flawlessly.

I believe what @nuclearsandwich means to say is that you cannot have two install spaces active if they were not built as overlays. Your setup works, as `/opt/ros` was active while `/opt/pal` was built. But if that was not the case, there is no link between the two and `source`ing one will deactive the other.

The setup described by the OP was like that.
